  3. hi fellas i converted to a cable accelerator setup a year ago as my then carbs were set up for a cable. new carbs in now still using the cable but it seems to be real shit in ways which I don't really want to explain. So i would like to hunt down a factory set of 240z linkages and an accelerator pedal. thanks, Phil oh 403603292.

    40Mm Mikuni Carbs

    Lou Mondello tuned mine, he made me took the thing apart at his shop with his tools and then he did the bits that were important and helped me fix anything that needed attention. He is a very skilled and knowledgeable man, because of this he is very busy and hard to access. As lurch said, 40mm will not be able to keep up, I was contemplating should I pick up a set of OERs as I was going to japan for a holiday, but after some guidance from various people. Webers were the go for the easy to access parts locally and consistent build quality.

    40Mm Mikuni Carbs

    selling my triple 40mm mikuni carbs with manifold, linkages, and trumpets. these has been taken apart three times, rebuilt and throttle shafts replaced then tuned with the help of a mikuni expert in melbourne in Jan 2016, I had this on my L28 but i think they are more suited to an L24 or L26, i wasn't 100% with the power, but it drives well. A lot of time was spent on these to have it running with a idle of 1000rpm as these older mikuni have problems with the metal type that was used. They were put on a heater to be heated up to 60 degrees or something and then installed on the car and then checked and tuned. I wanted to replace this with a set of 44s but i was getting over the amount of waiting time as it takes ages to find a good set to start off with and then waiting for the mikuni man to work on them as there's a huge queue for his service. the trumpets are from efi hardware SOLD
  9. got a set of linkages that I have as spares as I am using my old ones. http://www.weberperformance.com.au/product_info.php?cPath=3_75&products_id=483 $250 + postage.
